Should any articles be required not enumerated, they are to be furnished at the lowest market prices, according to quality. Blank forms for proposals will be furnished at the Department to persons applying for them; and as without uniformity therein the Department would find it difficult to make a decision, none will be taken into consideration unless substantially agreeing therewith. The printing must be executed with new and perfect type, and on the best paper used for the different descriptions required. The paper for the printing will be furnished by the contractor ; the Department, or the office ordering it, to designate the kind of paper and type, wneuier script or otherwise, ana the number to go on a sheet, when the matter or article will admit of more than one. Each class will be bid for and decided upon separately, and all other things being equal, it will be assigned to the lowest bidder. Where more than one class is assigned to a bidder, they may all be embraced in one contract; and each bidder, who may have one or more classes assigned to him, shall take all such classes, or forfeit his right to any portion of the contract. All the articles to be furnished and work to be executed must be of the best quality, and delivered without delay when ordered, and to the satisfaction of the head of the office for which they are required. The Department reserves to itself the right of ordering a greater or lean quantity of each and every article contracted for, as the public service may require.
